Bodyslam is a Thai rock band. The band is best known by the unique voice of the leading vocalist, Athiwara "Toon" Khongmalai, and the band's live performances. Bodyslam was originally called La – On which had started to get the attention from the public in 1996 when the band entered a band competition for high school students called "Hot Wave Music Awards" and won the first prize, beating nearly a hundred of other bands. The band returned in 2002 under the new name Bodyslam, shifting to heavier rock music with only three of the original six members remaining. The first self-titled album under their new name as a three-piece band was successful. The second album, Drive, was released in 2003, becoming equally successful as their previous album. On 15 September 2007, Bodyslam released their fourth album Save My life and a major concert in Bangkok followed in early October of that same year. The success of the new album had brought them a bigger fan base. They became one of the most popular bands in Thailand. They performed the largest concert in Thailand called Bodyslam Live in Kraam, at Rajamangala National Stadium on November 27, 2010 with an audience of 65,000 people.
